Ordinarily under the lws of all states in this country you have up to 6 months after the incident to file a claim with the entity that employs the police officer and after that, a certain time period to file suit. Given the complicated nature of the matter written about, I suggest that you consult with a personal injury attorney experienced in governmental tort actions.
